  • Ah you really should watch it. How it ends is just as powerful as how it began. You know it's a love story and they do get married, have kids and get old. She gets dementia and forgets who he is and her children. He reads her their story everyday to try to get her to remember and once she does, they both die in bed at the nursing home place where they lived. Love this movie !!!!!

  • thru the movie, he reads her a journal...turns out it was her that wrote it to help her come back from alzheimers. in the end, she does come back for all of a couple minutes. he has a heart attack but then comes back to the home. He sneaks into her room and she know who he is. she asks if it is possible that their love can do anything and if it can take them away together. He says yes. Crawls into bed with her and goes to sleep. The nurse comes in the next morning to find them holding each other and they are dead.

  • Ehh, I didn't really like "The Notebook"...having a grandmother who suffered from and died of Alzheimer's, I found the movie's portrayal of dementia to be maddeningly inaccurate and romanticized. I also didn't find the relationship between the main characters (in the flashbacks, anyway) very compelling...they're together for the summer, don't see each other for years, then the girl cheats on her fiance hardcore and gets back with the guy...I'd just like to see a movie with a stable romantic relationship that doesn't involve infidelity.
